Today we sat down with special guest Chad DeGroot and talked about a variety of things including his early beginnings and what it was like to work at his parents restaurant located just down the street from the Green Bay Packers stadium, his involvement with BACO Designs and the BACO video series, riding for Schwinn, entering the X Games, his move to Florida, owning two different skateparks, a bike shop called Mr Bs, and his bike company DECO.
He's one of the most original BMX riders of all time, not just in flatland, but everything he touches on his bike. He was VOTED#14MOST INFLUENTIAL RIDER IN THE PAST 20 YEARS by TRANSWORLD'S RIDE BMX MAGAZINE. He won the NORA cup rider of the year, 3 years in a row including 2002, 2003, and 2004. Not only is Chad an amazing rider with some great stories, he's spent over 30 years dedicating his life to the sport of BMX.
